Christmas Joy!

Hi OCS Fans;

Hope you all enjoyed the long weekend with family and friends.  Now that school is out for the children, summer is in full swing.  As we are halfway through the year, and before we know it Christmas will be here.  To get a start on the Christmas cards, OCS‘ challenge this month is “Christmas in July“.

For my post today, I have used an older High Hopes Rubber Stamp called “Christmas Joy Snowy“.  After cutting the image, I added glitter around the edge and some Faux Snow at the bottom.  The background and snowflakes were foiled using the Heidi Swapp Foil Applicator and holographic reactive foil.

Delight in the simple beauty…..

Hi Crafty Peeps;

I don’t know about you, but I am definitely tired of winter and can’t wait for spring to come.  For my post today, I have used this collage stamp called Birds and Blooms Collage stamp from Heartfelt Creations.

The main image was inked with the Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.  For the background I used the Heidi Swapp Minc Foil Applicator Machine, and ran a sheet of paper from a Heidi Swapp paper pad and Rose Gold Reactive Foil through it. The top and bottom border is a Joy’s Craft Stitched Die. I added a clear rhinestone to the middle of each flower.

Hot Chocolate time…..

Hi Fellow Crafters;

There is no doubt that the winter here in Ontario is either mild with melting snow or snowing and bitter cold temperatures.  Either way, it is a good time for Hot Chocolate.  For my post today, I have used this adorable stamp called Snowy Couple from the latest release of  High Hopes Rubber Stamps.  The sentiment is from the Winter Wonderland paper pack from Pebbles.
